Finding your Voice: Storytelling and Personal Vision

with Kael Alford

In this class we will explore what keeps many photojournalists in love with their work: the process of developing personal projects that capitalize on the author’s unique voice, strengths, passions and experience. I’ll work closely with each student to produce a photo essay or multimedia package with attention to his or her personal vision and goals as a photographer, both inside and outside the workshop.
Coaching will begin before the workshop starts; you should contact me to discuss your story ideas before the workshop and send samples of your work. During the class, in individual and group critiques, we will also discuss ways to find funding and how to market free standing, photo based packages.
You’re encouraged not required to bring audio or video recording equipment and editing software such as Soundslides, Audacity or Final Cut.
Peter Di Campo will be assisting this class.
